pPBMHE use of Copper for roofing has been 
I I 1 restricted by the assumption that on 
I j ^cc^^^^t of its cost, being higher than 

that of numerous other materials used 
for roofing, a copperroof was practically a luxury 
and too expensive for ordinary use. That copper 
is the ideal roof covering from every view-point 
has always been recognized. 

Careful and exhaustive investigation has 
proved that copper of the highest grade converted 
into a properly constructed Shingle or Tile can 
be made available to the Home Builder at a cost, 
in many cases, less than that for slate or clay-tile. 
To consummate this result has been the aim of 
two experienced and reliable factors: 

Detroit Copper & Brass Rolling Mais, 
Detroit, Michigan, 

for upwards of forty \ears one of the largest and 
most prominent manufacturers of Sheet Copper, 
produce and furnish sheets of the most suitable 
character from copper of the highest grades 
procurable, thus insuring metal of the finest 
(jualitv . 

The Edwards Manufacturing Company, 
Cincinnati, Ohio, 

one of the oldest and largest manufacturers of 
Sheet Metal Roofing, convert this sheet cop- 
per mto varied designs of Shingles and Tile,7 
none of which are experimental; designs whkh 
are proixrly c(instructed in everv respect'^nd 
are known and have \nvn in use amPstood the 
test for man> >cars, giving entji€^atisfaction

cost per years of service it is the cheapest of all 
roof coverings. The initial cost is naturally 
higher than that of some other materials used 
for roofing, but the first cost is the only cost 
of a roof of "Edwards*' Patented Interlocking 
Copper Shingles and ('()i)per Tile. There are 
no up-keep costs, ncj re[)airing, painting or 
replacing. The elements have no effect upon 
them only changing their color to a heautitul 
copperas gn^en. riie\ add di-^tiiR tioii to an\' 
structure with a charm and heautv that endures. 
This root will outlast the structure it beautifies 
and prote( t>. 

It is worthv of (ornment that when \\w

hav(* a salvage value ot in the neighborhood of 
one-third ot its ( o^t .

REALIZING THE NEED FOR SHINGLES WITH DESIGNS TO CONFORM WITH THE VARIOUS ORDERS 

OF ARCHITECTURE WE MANUFACTURE A WIDE SELECTION OF PATTERNS WHICH PERMIT OF 

AN EVERLASTING COPPER SHINGLE ROOF ON A BUILDING OF ANY PERIOD.

Here is a decided novelty — a 
pattern that will enhance the 
appearance of any building. 

As its name implies, tiles of 
this pattern helped to make the 
Roman villages of twenty cen- 
turies ago the mar\^els of beauty 
that they were. 

The deep depressions of the 
design form a large dead air 
space under each shingle, more 
effectually keeping out the heat 
of summer and the cold of 
winter. 

The Edwards Interlocking 
Device makes joints at both 
ends and sides so firm and secure 
that water positively can not 
work in and wind can not work 
them loose.

A COPPER SHINGLE OR SPANISH TILE ROOF IS AN INVESTMENT AND NOT AN EXPENSE 



"French Slate'' Copper Shingles 




Size 10 X 14 inches 

A roof of "FRENCH 
SLATE" copper shingles will 
lend charm and dignity to any 
dwelling. 

The design was modelled by 
our artist after a careful study of 
roofs in France and other Euro- 
pean countries. 

There is only one kind of a 
roof that will endure indefinitely 
and this one kind is copper 
which endurance with pleasing 
appearance makes our 
"FRENCH SLATE" Copper 
shingles a very popular roof 
covering. 

Our ornamental fixtures such 
as ridge and hip finish and finials 
harmonize very well with this 
pattern. 




A ROOF OF COPPER SHINGLES OR SPANISH TILE WILL LOWER THE COST OF INSURANCE. 



"Queen Anne'' Copper Shingles 




Size 10 X 14 inches — 

The chaste beauty of this de- 
sign makes the **Q U E E N 
ANNE" design shingle roof one 
of eye-catching charm. 

The embossing is deep and 
clean cut, producing, when laid, 
a very striking effect. 

This deep embossing also al- 
lows free circulation of the air, 
which is a great aid in keeping 
the roof cool in summer. 

An Edwards Copper shingle 
roof is the cheapest roof cover- 
ing — measuring the cost per 
vears of service. Replacements 
are never necessary for they 
cannot freeze nor crack and Avill 
outlast the building to which 
I hey are applied.

COPPER SHINGLES AND SPANISH TILE ARE ABSOLUTELY FIRE-PROOF. 



'' Rookzvood'" Copper Shincrlcs 




Size 10 X 14 inches — 

The "ROOKWOOD" is quite 
similar in design to the "Oueen 
Anne" Shingle and we recom- 
mend either pattern where orna- 
mentation or a finearchitectur.il 
effe( t is desired. 

The rf)of is an iin[)ortant dc 
terrninin^ factor in the beauty ot 
a home and therefore deserves 
every consideration, for an un-

fine h»okin^ house mars the en-

IN OUR SPANISH TILES OF COPPER THE BEAUTIFYING POWERS OF THE MOORS HAVE BECOME 
THE PROPERTY OF THE PRACTICAL TWENTIETH CENTURY. 



Each piece of Tile, as well as every fixture, is an exact piece of workmanship 
and absolutely perfect, so that the application of a SPANISH TILE ROOF 
OF COPPER is very simple, and, when completed, positively watertight.

"PERFECT^ VALLEY 

For Tile Roofs 
The particular advantage in 
using this style valley is that 
the bead acts as a gutter for any 
water that might possibly back 
up under the tile and carries off 
same into gutter at eaves, 
thereby insuring you a perfect 
watertight roof. This is why 
we call it the "Perfect" Valley. 




Method of Locking Valley Tile 

into Valley. 

Valleys as a rule are difficult to cut, but 
by using our right and left valley tile, and 
cutting along dotted line (see illustration) 
and bending tile into the lock of our "Perfect" 
Valley, this difficulty is done away with.

Directions for Applying Spanish Tile of Copper 

Line roof up and down and crosswise as shown above, keeping perpendicular lines at right angles 
with eave line. 

Commence starting course at extreme left of roof, keeping bottom of tile true to eave line and 
true to perpendicular lines. 

Do not let tile project over eaves. Lay 
next course lapping over first course, just enough 
to cover storm ribs on upper part of tile. 

Put 2x4 strips on hips and ridge and 
cut tiles to butt up against 2x4. 
Then apply the hip or ridge flashing 
to which the hip and ridge tile are 
fastened with cleats. In working 
valleys, see that closed ends are 
kept in line, then lock your field 
tile to valley tile; 
that is, in starting. 

In finishing, lock 
your valley tile to the 
field tile, watching to 
keep closed ends in 
line.
